The new 6.5in X-Series N2 features a transfer case drop kit, forged adjustable track bar, brake line brackets, sway-bar disconnects and a drop pitman arm, promoting optimum angles for suspension components after lifting. A set of lifted coil springs, all-new rear lifted leaf springs and rear lift shackles help your XJ gain a total of 6.5-inches of lift - plenty of clearance for 33in tires and up to 35in with minor fender trimming. This X-Series kit features Rough Country's X-Flex Control arms in the front upper and lower position. X-Flex Arms are fully adjustable, and feature a ball-in joint, massive 2.5in diameter body, and huge 1.25in threads. X-Flex Control Arm Joints have long offered considerable range, strength, and safety for off-road applications - but it doesn't stop there. X-Flex Joints now feature Adjustable Retainer Rings, allowing you to preload the bushings by compressing them prior to install. These NEW bushings are fitted with interlocking grooves that completely encase the ball joint for a firm grip. Made of high-quality 88 Durometer Urethane, these bushings retain the memory of their original shape, are weather resistant, and offer a much longer lifespan. This X-Series Lift now also offers N2.0 shocks; outfitted with rubber bushings and armed with 10-stage velocity sensitive valving, chromed hardened 9/16in piston rods, and massive 1 3/8in bores; allowing for a super smooth highway ride and outstanding control in rugged off-road situations - all from the same shock. So if you're looking for longevity and an uncompromised ride, look no further. Rough Country's X-Series N2 features the best of the best in off-road hardware. Read More

  1. for the price wasn't bad - Posted by: kryptonite (8/15/15)

    Rides smooth for the most part definitely took longer to install but im running 36x13.50r15 iroks with some trimming but it not level for sure but I still wheel s**t outta it

  2. Great - Posted by: Mat (6/27/15)

    Great lift kit. High quality really like the rebuildable joints and being able to tighten them as they wear in. Only thing I would suggest is to add a 1 3/4 coil spacers cause with out them the jeep is stink bugged. So to level it it needs the coil spacer upfront. Should have included longer brake lines. Defenitly use a slip yoke eliminator and dc drive shaft. Thanks rough country for a great lift at a great price.

  3. Worked Really Well - Posted by: therealJBlack (3/18/15)

    Getting the old suspension off is a pain in the ass. Ended up using a cutting torch and all new bolts. After a few parts were mixed up or not sent, I got the new suspension on really quickly. I ended up putting 35x12.5 tires after adding a fender flare kit for which I modified the fender a bit. They only rubbed in the front on the plastic piece of the bumper which I promptly removed. Definitely get your vehicle aligned after this install (I used a truck shop since most chains wouldn't align modified suspension)! Everything ended up really good after the a thorough install and alignment. Unfortunately, a drunk driver took my jeep out so all that enjoyment of the fruits of my labor was short lived. I'm thinking about getting another XJ and doing it again though.
